We stayed 22-29 April 2017 and would highly recommend this very very well-equipped, comfortable, perfectly clean and beautifully located cottage.. We had a lovely welcome package awaiting us as well as lots of invaluable information about the immediate, local and wider area, including some fascinating local history. We visited many of the local attractions including Tweddle farm park, Durham Cathedral, locomotion museum , Prudhoe castle, Finchale Priory, Barnard Castle, Wharton park in Durham (with great kids play park) Washington hall, Seaham (amazing ice cream parlour) and St. Brandon's and the lovely coffee shop in the gatehouse of Brancepeth castle. Our young child loved being able to feed the chickens and see the sheep and horses on the farm too! We had a great break in a lovely cottage in a great location. Would definitely recommend!
